Martin Montoya loving his new wing-back role with Brighton

Martin Montoya is loving his new wing-back role with Brighton.

The Spaniard has been deployed on the right in a 3-4-3 under new manager Graham Potter.

And the new freedom is suiting Montoya to a tee.

Montoya told The Argus: "With this system, I have more freedom to play the ball.

"We try to use the ball and create chances.

"We enjoy it more. We play more football, we have more possession.

"You've seen the chances we have created in our first two matches.

"I've always been someone who enjoys having the ball.

"I think having possession generates confidence within the team, it helps you get forward and create a lot more chances than when you just defend.

"On Saturday, we had enough chances to win. The other day, we won 3-0 and this is the way to follow.

"If we keep going as we are, we will hit our targets."
